Vampires in Chicago!
Youd think headlines like that would have provoked the fine citizens of the Windy City to take up arms against us bloodsucking fiends. Instead, ten months later, were enjoying a celebrity status reserved for the Hollywood elite—fending off paparazzi only slightly less dangerous than cross- and stake-wielding slayers. Dont get me wrong. Joe Public isnt exactly thrilled to be living side-by-side with the undead, but at least they havent stormed the castle...yet.
All that will change once they learn about the Raves—mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle and drink themselves silly. Most civilized vampires frown on this behavior—but that doesnt make good copy for a first-time reporter looking to impress his high-society family.
So now my master—the centuries-old yet gorgeously well-preserved Ethan Sullivan—wants me to reconnect with my own upper-class family and act as liaison between humans and vampires...and keep the more unsavory aspects of our existence out of the media. But someone doesnt want people and vamps to play nicey-nice—someone with an ancient grudge.
